Outstanding education from Pre-School through to Sixth Form
Sherrardswood has small class sizes. A school where everyone knows and values each other. The focus is truly on the individual child and their own, personal endeavour. Through instilling a love of learning in the Early Years and nurturing our children through Prep and Senior we enable our students to achieve at the highest level at GCSE and A Level. Regularly topping league tables for GCSE passes, we are also proud of our 86% A* to B record. Our students don't just pass, they excel.
We are a small and friendly, co-educational school with an outstanding reputation for first-class care and education for just over three hundred 2 to 18 year olds. We have been educating and enriching the lives of young people for nearly ninety years and are proud of our long history of academic excellence.
From Pre-School through to Sixth Form, we provide a seamless progression of outstanding education aimed at developing the talents, skills and personality of every pupil. An outstanding education made possible through a combination of a supportive, family atmosphere, small class sizes and exceptional teaching. This happy combination is further enhanced by our uniquely magnificent grounds and setting. As you drive through the gates you will immediately understand why every pupil and every teacher starts the day inspired to give their very best.
School accounts for a huge proportion of a child’s life and parents need to have the unwavering belief that whilst at school, they are always being both fully motivated and protected. Here at Sherrardswood Preparatory School we fully embrace this sentiment and truly believe that a happy child will flourish and reach their true potential. Our closely knit community and small class sizes ensure that every child is known and understood by all. The magnificent grounds encourage the dedicated teachers to extend the learning beyond the constraints of the classroom; incorporating opportunities to utilise the outdoors as a vehicle to promote a desire and passion for learning.
We understand that children all learn in different ways and at Sherrardswood we allow our pupils to discover themselves in a safe and supported environment with the whole child being celebrated and valued as an important member of our community. The children are challenged intellectually, creatively and physically with manners and kindness being central to all that we do.
We strongly believe that a first rate education should not only lead to excellent exam results. How our pupils interact with each other and develop as valuable members of society, with positive principles and enthusiasm for all life can offer, is of equal importance to us. The only way to experience what makes Sherrardswood such a wonderful place is to arrange a visit.
We are dedicated to providing a unique family environment where we can discover and develop the talents and personality of each child; where young people are nurtured and grow into self-assured, happy adults who aspire to the highest levels of personal achievement. If you were to ask current parents why they chose Sherrardswood, they would tell you that the children here are happy, confident and inquisitive - yet excited and enthused by the challenges before them. They might add that Sherrardswood succeeds in combining academic excellence with a wealth of extra curricular opportunities, all underpinned by a deep commitment to the individual needs and enthusiasms of each one of our students. The result is happy, confident individuals who are ready and prepared to thrive in the next stage of their life.
The focus of our Sixth Form is to educate and nurture young, aspiring academics in their chosen fields of interest. Viewed as school leaders by the younger generations, being a Sixth Form student is a responsibility and a privilege.
The atmosphere of our Sixth Form is very special. Students who join from other schools are made to feel very welcome and quickly settle in. There is a designated Sixth Form area where students can get to know one another and work individually or together in a supportive and purposeful, yet social environment. Sherrardswood Sixth Form students go on to study at many of the top universities. We believe that a good education should not only lead to excellent exam results. How our students interact with their community and develop as valuable members of society, with positive principles and values and an enthusiasm for all that life can offer, is of equal importance to us.
